About the Book: The Carls just appeared. Coming home from work at 3 a.m., 23-year-old April May stumbles across a giant sculpture. Delighted by its appearance and craftsmanship -- like a ten-foot-tall Transformer wearing a suit of samurai armor -- April and her friend Andy make a video with it, which Andy uploads to YouTube. The next day April wakes up to a viral video and a new life. News quickly spreads that there are Carls in dozens of cities around the world -- everywhere from Beijing to Buenos Aires -- and April, as their first documentarian, finds herself at the center of an intense international media spotlight. Compulsively entertaining and powerfully relevant, An Absolutely Remarkable Thing grapples with big themes, including how the internet is changing fame, rhetoric, and radicalization; how our culture deals with fear and uncertainty; and how vilification and adoration spring from the same dehumanization that follows a life in the public eye.

About the Author: Hank Green is the CEO of Complexly, a production company that creates educational content, including Crash Course and SciShow, prompting The Washington Post to name him "one of America's most popular science teachers." Complexly's videos have been viewed more than two billion times on YouTube. Hank Green has co-founded a number of other small businesses, including, which helps online creators make money by selling cool stuff to their communities; and VidCon, the world's largest conference for the online video community. Hank Green and his brother, John Green, also started the Project for Awesome, which last year raised more than $2 million for charities, including Save the Children and Partners in Health. Hank Green lives in Montana with his wife, son, and cat.
